Angel Flight Team Flies Pediatric Foot Surgery Patient

Contributed by Warren Ludlam 

The Greensboro Rotary Club’s Angel Flight team continues working to help those in need with its free air transportation to special medical appointments. Our pilots volunteer to fly surgery patients, transplant recipients, organ donors, cancer patients, burn survivor children, kidney patients and others dealing with chronic health issues at no charge.

Team pilot Jeff Ackerman and his wife, Michelle, helped fly Oge and her 10-month-old daughter, Eliana, a foot surgery patient being treated in South Florida, home to Winston-Salem. Oge and her husband gratefully thanked Jeff and Michelle, the Greensboro Rotary Club, and the Angel Flight organization for being “blessings” in the lives of their family.

Our Greensboro Rotary Angel Flight team’s fuel is funded by the Greensboro Rotary Club Foundation, enabling us to fly volunteer Angel Flight missions. The flights benefit chronically-ill children, adults, and military veterans by providing free air transportation to and from their special medical treatments and for reasons of compassion – plus in support at times of natural disasters. Our team’s pilots donate their time and aircraft to assist those in need at no cost and on an unlimited basis. Club members are encouraged to direct referrals requesting flight assistance to team manager Warren Ludlam at
